“General Arts and Science helps students strengthen their written and verbal communication skills, their ability to solve problems, and to work well with others. It provides them with the skills necessary to adapt to an ever changing workplace, to become creative thinkers, and to make sound judgments,” says Esther Griffin, Liberal Arts and Academic Excellence faculty.

Students can choose from a couple of options – a one-year certificate or two-year diploma. Both programs help build a foundation for further postsecondary education at either the college or university level; they can also choose to enter the workforce right away with a broad range of work-ready skills.

Georgian students benefit from experienced, dedicated faculty, small class sizes, state-of-the-art facilities and excellent support services.

Spots are still open for the Pre-health Sciences and Personal Support Worker programs at Georgian College’s Muskoka Campus.

The campus offers full-time classes in Pre-Health Sciences starting in September as well as classes in the Personal Support Worker program beginning in January.

Not sure which career to pursue in the health care sector? The one-year Pre-Health Sciences certificate program is designed to assist students in determining which health science program will best suit their needs. It provides students with the opportunity to examine the expectations of various health science disciplines and to assess their suitability and compatibility in relation to these expectations.

Recent high school graduates or mature students wanting to return to postsecondary education may wish to access this program to enrich their knowledge of health science related courses and also to obtain necessary prerequisites for admissions to other programs.

The Personal Support Worker program is designed to prepare students with the knowledge and skills needed to provide support services to people living at home, in long-term care or acute care facilities, and to function as integral members of the health care team. Those who have successfully completed the program will have demonstrated the ability to effectively communicate with clients, families and members of the health care team.

Georgian’s Muskoka Campus offers academic upgrading, flexible schedules, and a welcoming community of faculty and staff to help you build your future career in health and wellness

The campus also offers the Registered Practical Nursing program through part-time studies and continues to offer other part-time courses that meet local industry needs.
